    ABSTRACT: Diagnostic Radiology and Medical Imaging residents of French University Hospitals benefit from a wide array of learning tools. However, the professors' clinical workload, lack of sufficient proper formal training, lack of practical applicability of existing standards, and absence of rigorous assessment during the specialized training, reduce their very good quality formation to the level of accidental learning. This study originates from the need to apply a systemic planification of learning activities to the French residents' formal training curriculum, such as the one originally designed and applied within the Quebec educational system. This presentation also benefits from the recent introduction of the CanMEDS 2000 objectives by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, in order to design an adapted version for the professional and academic activities of French radiologists. Needless to say this work will respect the outlined systematic planning of any learning activity: learning requirements, definition of learning objectives, selection of learning methods, assessment of the participants' achievement of these objectives, and evaluation of the learning activity itself.
